And last but not least...

You guessed it Shae it's Doreen another talented Creative Design Team member.

A little about me…

I am a happily married, stay-at-home mom with 2 children, a 22 year old daughter and an 8 year old son. I also have 4 furry kids… 3 Maine Coone cats and a Rottie. We live near Charlotte after moving from northeast Pennsylvania 2 years ago.

I started scrapbooking when my daughter was a senior in high school. She was captain of her high school state championship field hockey team. I just had to document that exciting time in her life. I love everything about scrapping from shopping for supplies and the newest items on the market and then organizing all my stuff, to creating layouts. And let’s not forget about meeting so many wonderful people. I am always looking to learn something new about my craft. My style is eclectic. I got my knk last summer and have been kutter krazy ever since.

I also enjoy decorating my home, reading, cooking, movies and …did I mention shopping?!

Ta-Da! I want to introduce you to a very talented group of ladies! I am so blessed to have each one! They work so hard at creating such awesome layouts/cards and projects that will give you inspiration. You can see most of their work in the gallery or on my blog! I hope you take time to get to know them! Thank you team for sharing your gift of talent with us all!

*news flash***I still have one more to introduce you to***she is just as special as the rest! Watch for her in the upcoming days.

I grew up in Iowa, I am the oldest of 5. I have a Masters degree in Exercise Science, but would rather scrapbook than exercise....giggle....giggle...

I fell in love and married a Canadian Hockey player. We lived in Winnipeg Manitoba for 7 years and froze our little behinds off. We are now back in Iowa where the weather is a little more moderate.

I am a mother to 3 children (who grace most of my pages). I am a Christian, Certified Athletic Trainer and I teach at the community college. I have been scrapping for about 8 years, have been really serious about it for the last 4. I have owned my Craft Robo for just over 1 year and could not scrap without it.

I have been scrapbooking for almost 10 years. I truly enjoy the craft! Before getting into scrapbooking I have dabbled in just about all aspects of crafting from crossstitch to decorative painting. I think that is why I love Scrapbooking so much since it involves many aspects of crafting...I can incorporate my love for painting, buttons you name it anything goes well on a scrapbook page.

Recently, I started designing cards too! It is great to have a handmade card to give to someone instead of spending all that money on store bought not so personalized cards! I am just starting to delve into digital scrapbooking too and hope to mix some digital elements into my traditional scrapbook pages.

I purchased my digital cutter as a impulse buy when I saw the infomercial on QVC around Sept 2007. This was a scary thing for me to spend so much money on a thing that simply cuts paper. However, I am so glad I made the purchase. It has enriched my life so much! I can't image living without it! I even have started designing my own files for sale at Cuttersmarket. I am loving all the people I am meeting through my cutter groups!

I have two adorable children an 11month old baby girl and a 4 year old boy. They keep me busy but life would be so boring without them! I love them and my hubby of almost 11 years more than words can express.

I live with DH Jeff and our two boys (Christopher
age 5 & Michael age 2) and our two beagles (Reuben and
Daisy) in Iowa. I've had my CraftRobo for 2 years and
love this excellent excuse to use it more!

I've scrapbooked since 1999 and have recently delved into
digital/hybrid a bit also. I'll never give any of it up; I just love to learn new things all the time:)

I work "partial part time" as a PA/physician assistant at my local Fast Track/ER and one evening per week at the Free Clinic.

I try to keep up with friends and family at my blog:

My name is Jennifer and I have been scrapping since 1996. It started out as a way to meet new people since I married my military hubby and moved thousands of miles away from my family and friends but it has really evolved into a passion for both creating great pages and collecting cool stuff.

My family is the main focus of my pages and includes my hubby,
two boys and lazy beagle dog. I tend to scrap chronologically and I am always way behind. Some of my favorite scrappy things are paper, clear buttons, sewing and did I mention paper.

Born in Vermont, Lived in New York until age of 9 moved to Florida and have lived here since. My mother and other relatives were creative and did a lot of crochet. I began scrapbooking in High School only I didn't realize that what I did was actually a hobby. LOL..

I am Happily Married to the most wonderful man in the world. Ladies, I don't think they make many like my wonderful hubby but I am sure you feel the same about yours... But I am spoiled rotten... I have three wonderful children all boys. Jake(18) Bret (18) No they aren't twins. Bret is my stepson but I love him like my own :) and Thomas (14).

I am a Computer Network/Software Technician for a School District so at times between work and family things can get a little busy and crazy.

I am so proud to have been one of the chosen ones to be on Carrie's Design Team. What a great opportunity and Carries files are great! Check em out!

Mega Packs will be on sale tomorrow at 35% off and go through out the month!

I really messed up on my sales over the weekend when the Mega Packs ended on Saturday rather then on Sunday. So to make it up to you, the Mega Packs will go on sale tomorrow, April 16th and continue through out the entire month of April. AND I have increased the savings to 35% Off! WHOO HOO!

With my birthday coming up I will have some great sales on that day too! With every file other than the Mega files at 45 % off. The Mega files will continue to be on sale that day for 35% off.

I hope to have more Mega packs pulled together for you so you can enjoy even bigger savings! They will be announced as they come into the store.

Have you seen my little calendar on the right side? I love it! With my calendar there you can see what is on sale for the month! And see anything else that is going on. If you click on the print button you can print out and be ready for the sales. How cool! If you click on the day with a message you may be able to see what's going on, I've yet to figure out a way for all of the message to be seen. So the best way for you to know what's up with Carrie's Creations is to hit that print button! Can you tell how excited I am?

Update on converting files to .wpc - I have quite a few to do! As I am going through and pulling together the Mega files I'm getting in their and converting. Then I plan to go back through the other files. I will let you know when I start to get them in the store. This is great news for all Pazzles owners who no longer will have to open a file in AV8! AND just to let you know all of the files in the Beach Mega Pack have been converted to WPC! YEAH! :)

Update on Randy: He is not doing so well. Please continue to keep the family and Randy in your prayers. The doctor's believe he will be staying in the hospital for over a month now, having days that will set him back and very small steps towards recovery. They also believe he will need intensive rehabilitation. Thank you all for your continual prayer support!

Lastly for those who have contacted me from posting to my blog please use my email address above so I can get files to you. Please include the format that you need!

HaPpY ScRaPpInG!

Jenny called this evening and her father has taken a good turn! Whew...he is still in ICU but they believe he will recover. The doctors told her today that they really expected him to die, but now that he is turning around they thought they could tell her that they really believe this is a miracle!

The antibiotics are working and reducing the pneumonia, it's not all gone but it is doing it's job. Jenny said when she first walked in he gave a little wave from his hand and that's when she knew the worst was over.

I told her how many of you are praying for her father and her family, she was amazed with your kindness and compassion and wanted me to tell you thank you!

And I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Now that' good news!
